If you consider yourself a connoisseur of cannabis, this dream job could be for you! A German firm is on the hunt for an experienced 'Cannabis Sommelier', offering up to $142,500 per year in salary.
Cannamedical, a renowned German company providing medicinal cannabis products to pharmacies around the country, is on the search for an experienced professional capable of upholding its high standards.
The successful candidate will be responsible for inspecting and evaluating grower practices in Australia, Canada, Portugal, Macedonia and Denmark- five countries at the forefront of cannabis production worldwide. CEO David Henn noted that those who can guarantee premium quality products have what it takes to excel within their team.
Before you start selling off everything you own and buy yourself a ticket to Germany know that you must live in Germany and be an active medical cannabis patient registered in the country's system.
The company-appointed cannabis sommelier will be responsible for helping the company develop and expand its product offerings, providing consumers with new aspects of quality in marijuana selection.
Quality assurance and supply chain management are among the key duties of a cannabis sommelier. According to a recent article, these professionals must uphold stringent criteria when evaluating different strains - guaranteeing customers access to only the highest-quality products on offer.
The cannabis sommelier should have developed a comprehensive skillset, offering market analysis and insightful articles on medical cannabis along with educational work in the field.
Germany is on the brink of a major shift in its cannabis policy: last October, their coalition government reached an agreement to legalize recreational marijuana by 2024. The proposal would enable individuals aged 18 or older to possess up to 30 grams for personal use and permit licensed shops and pharmacies as distributors. It's estimated that legalization could generate 3 billion Euros annually through taxation.
In 2020, Germany saw a record high of 10,000kgs imported from Canada for medical cannabis - however, the nation's reliance on foreign trade is shifting as other countries sign supply agreements and its own domestic production increases.
Germany is projected to become a major player in the international cannabis market, with domestic cultivation expected to eventually produce more than 2,600 kg of the product annually.
